Wollemi Pine

Is this, my latest treasure, safe for the tortoise garden? This is a baby one, so a couple of fronds at beak height. I can't imagine Achillea nibbling it, but best safe than sorry.....

I can stand it on a stone or upturned pot if necessary

Oh wow, I'd love a Wollemi Pine -- your own fossil tree! Achillea shouldn't want to eat it as the needles are high in tannins and fairly bitter to the taste (here is our entry for pine ... RTpUY97m9s but you really can't predict what they will eat. I was told that I could have a Rosemary in a pot in the tortoise table for decoration and the strong taste would put my Doris off, but on the first afternoon she knocked the pot over and demolished the whole plant. So I would definitely stand it on a stone or an upturned pot, just in case, as it's a special tree and you don't want to lose it.
